  1. Thanks to @minnbuckeye who gave me a site suggestion to an Iowa Devonian locality when I was on my way to the White River Formation of Nebraska, I was able to satisfy my palaeozoic fix this past June. Here are my finds (scale in photos is cm/mm): Orthospirifer cf. O. cooperi Strophodonta sp. Cranaena sp.

  7. Iowa lawmakers: After 500 million years, crinoid fossils deserve recognition. William Petroski, Des Moines register, Jan. 19, 2018 https://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/news/politics/2018/01/19/iowa-state-fossil-crinoid/1047564001/ Yours, Paul H.
  8. As much as I've looked through books and the internet, I haven't run across any possible places to find ammonites in the midwest. Any suggestions of locations? I'm in Illinois. My wife's keen to hunt one of these down.
  9. Not a crinoid # 2

    Again, this was a surprise found in the Burlington Limestone while looking for the ever present crinoid. It is hollow and of a color that I had never seen. Any thoughts are welcomed. Mike
  10. Not a crionoid!! Fish part?

    This was discovered while hunting in the Burlington Limestone in no other than Burlington, Ia. If anyone has hunted this formation, they would know 90% of the rock is made up of light colored crinoidal debris. Occasionally a brachiopod s encountered and they may be darker than the crinoids, but pale against this. I know there is a fish layer in the Burlington and am hoping that this may be the ID.
  11. Iowa Quarry

    Last Sunday I had the opportunity to travel to East Central Iowa to collect Devonian fossils. It was a nice foggy morning drive to the quarry. Upon approaching the quarry, there was a house burning down- a odd, surreal scene. At the bottom of the quarry could smell the smoke from the house. No pics of the quarry were permitted which is too bad as it is a geologically fascinating place. Devonian Cedar Valley formation, lower Solon exposed as well as Pennsylvanian karsts. Here are a few of my finds. Hexagonaria Trilobites. Eldredgeops peeking out from the rocks Acleistoceras sp And last, but not least, this nice crystal. Thanks for looking. Cheers
  12. Epworth, Iowa fossil ID

    I apologize that I didn't take a better picture. I realize that you don't have much to work with but I'm wondering if anyone can help me ID the largest fossil that's visible in this rock. I didn't put anything in for scale. The rock is sitting on a paper towel (not the best reference for size). I believe it is surrounded by straight cephalopods. I was with my cousin when she found this fossil on her private property in Epworth, Iowa. I'd like to know more about this fossil. I am a science teacher and I'd like to share this picture with my class and I'd like to know more about it to answer any questions that may arise. The actual fossil is still in Iowa at my cousin's house. I may be able to have her take additional pics.
  13. I drove about 4hrs west to find trilobites, came home with cephs. I did happen to find some pretty neat trilobites, but they need prepping, so i won't post them. Hunting more for trilobites this year i come across a lot of other fossils and i find it exceedingly hard to leave a neat looking cephalopod behind, so i grab em. Most of these will be left outside, but some are nice enough for display. Here are some nice ones. I love the contrast and size on this piece. The isotelus cephalon and worm burrows don't hurt either. Continued....
  14. The Carboniferous of the USA

    for those with catholic tastes in stratigraphy Do NOT expect pictorial exuberancy,it's more of a tabulation of lithologies and their stratigraphic interpretation than anything else
  15. Hello all, I am looking for good reference material to identify fossils I picked up at Rockford, IA. I haven't been able to find a really good publication that covers the majority of what is find-able in Iowa's Devonian deposits and I'm hoping you can point me in the right direction. Thanks!
  16. Unknown

    I found this along the Skunk river in Iowa and have no idea what it is. If anyone has any idea please let me know!
  17. Ordovician mystery piece. Help, please

    Found this piece in Iowa yesterday while hunting trilobites. I've never seen anything like it. The six point symmetry with it's bulbous tips are very strange. And the fact that it is very water-worn doesn't help with an ID. I'm thinking holdfast or possibe starfish. What do you guys see? Scale in mm/cm
  18. A recent trip to Coralville, Iowa provided me with these coral specimens, each unique in their own way: 1. I posted this a few weeks ago prior to removing most of the matrix from it This rugosa coral was huge!! Check out the scale. 2. The next coral might be mistaken for a mushroom: Oops, I meant this one:
  19. Iowa and Nebraska

    Not sure where to post this, but here goes: I will be travelling west on I-80 through Iowa and Nebraska and wondered if anyone could recommend any easy-access fossil hunting sites within a half-hour / 45 min, or so, off of I-80 in Iowa or Nebraska. Preferably roadcuts or other relatively easy-access sites that are public and known not to draw problems from law enforcement or locals. I'm not interested in collecting vertebrates - just invertebrates. I've never hunted either state. Also, if anyone knows whether there are any regulations against fossil hunting along roadcuts, etc., in either state. Thanks for any help / suggestions!
